Mike Huckabee, the Arkansas upstart that has managed to outlast both Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani, is challenging the election results of the Washington State Republican Party.
Here's a quote from a Huckabee statement obtained by PolitickerWA:
The Huckabee campaign is deeply disturbed by the obvious irregularities in the Washington State Republican precinct caucuses. It is very unfortunate that the Washington State Party Chairman, Luke Esser, chose to call the race for John McCain after only 87 percent of the vote was counted. According to CNN, the difference between Senator McCain and Governor Huckabee is a mere 242 votes, out of more than 12,000 votes counted-with another 1500 or so votes, apparently, not counted. That is an outrage.

My editors thought it was too much, so I scaled it back a bit, but here's Ric Flair as he would've appeared:
Here's a video of Flair on the campaign trail with Huckabee:
